Interesting Signs in the wilderness.

This one is from Småland, in southern Sweden. The closest reindeer was 500 km north. The caption is, "indoors as well".

This is from an ordinary village in southern Sweden. Someone REALLY did not want visitors.

It's about time someone warned us about this risk.

Actually the sign may not be legal. As far as I'm aware, under all Australian jurisdictions there must be two signs delineating the extent of the NSAT (No Standing Any Time) or similar restricted areas. These signs are usually at a maximum of 200 (two hundred) metres and the NSAT cannot cross intersections within the meaning of the Road Safety Act, RS Regulations, or local equivilant. On balance of probability the sign has no effect at law.

Apart from that, LOL.

Horse-sized wombats - not at all! The area is inhabited by very small horses and leprechauns. A conventional horse is easy to see, but the tiny ones blend in. This is why the sign was put up.

Oh yes, I missed that. Fortunately I'm used to crawling, keeping a low profile.
